First off, I want to say how happy I am that type 1 diabetes did not stand in the way of Judge Sonia Sotomayor being nominated to the highest court in the land. I, as many of you know have type 1, too. She will be the first person with type 1 to be nominated and confirmed as a Supreme Court Justice. Now, why does this matter? Discrimination my friends. It happens! I may not agree with her politics, but my hat is off to her. She has beat the prejudice,and unfairness given to folks with this disease. :)
I've been pondering Glam's posts this week on art and craft. She posted her Father-in-law's essay, which was very good and I so enjoyed reading it. To me art is the ability to create beautiful things that stir me. If it makes me feel, then it's art.
I've been thinking about creativity. Can you dig in and write whenever you sit down at your computer? Or does it come and go? It comes and goes with me. I know when it's coming though. It's something I feel inside. Like today, it came! YAY! Creativity = the ability to use the imagination to develop new and original ideas or things especially in an artistic context. Does your muse come every time you sit down at the computer, or are you like me and you know when it's approaching. You feel it and then you sit down and write your beautiful words. That's what it's all about my friends. The words! :)I'm off to my critique group meeting with Beth.
